This screen shot shows a typical display found on the DVD of the Buckeye Speech Corpus. Shown are two visual representations of a phrase spoken by one of the talkers, indicating volume and frequency. Below the displays is a line with a transcription of what the speaker is saying. Then comes a line of “phonemic labeling,” which shows how each word spoken was pronounced – similar to the pronunciation guides found in a dictionary. Please listen to the accompanying audio to hear the woman speaking this phrase.
This is an actual audio clip of a woman talking that is a part of the Buckeye Speech Corpus. Please see the accompanying image to view the labeling and display that goes along with this audio clip.
